    What happens if you quit taking plaquenil


    Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia.

    Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. If you're gonna experiment, I went off it cold turkey as it didn't hurt to do it that way, but you better get back on before the summer or you could experience a flare-up. It would be unlikely IMO that the Plaquenil is the cause, since there is tapering necessary when stopping it and no documented 'withdrawal' syndrome associated with it. If you have taken it for a long time, it is probably not even out of your system yet, since Plaquenil has a half-life of 30-60 DAYS not hours. If you take Plaquenil, it is important to see an ophthalmologist while you take this medicine. What happens if retinal damage is found? If your ophthalmologist finds any signs of retinal damage, he or she will tell your primary care doctor or inflammatory disease specialist to stop Plaquenil treatment immediately.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.
